I've also pointed out before, again more than once, that leftism (feminism is leftist) is about the murder of the archetypical Father. And that leftism (and therefore feminism) is based on envy. Which means there is no gratitude or appreciation whatsoever.
Envy, more than anything else, wants to overthrow and destroy. And that is why you get such concepts as Dead White Males and "patriarchy" - destroy them! Overthrow them! Give it all to me! I should rule!
I've been thinking about this for decades, long before the Internet and certainly long before the Manosphere (which is why I know so much of it is adolescent nonsense).
Ingratitude is one of the worst vices in the world. It's a species of envy: "You've got it, now give it to me."
Men invented everything in the world. Okay, maybe not everything. Just 99.99% of it. Women did invent some things (who has ever heard of Grace Hopper?) but those women are extreme outliers.
And it's not because of "oppression" and "patriarchy." It's because men and women have different brains. Hell, different everything.
Not only was it men, it was specifically white men (specifically Western European), who created/discovered/invented about 98% of everything in the world. Of course the envious are going to say they stole it and did it on the backs of those they “oppressed” and “enslaved” - or destroyed all those wonderful ancient societies that had jet airplanes and advanced brain surgery 50,000 years ago. But again, that's what the envious claim, and again, it's easy to tell who the envious are - they consistently, chronically, put down those who are better than they are – who've done a lot more than they have.
Men invent, discover, create (sometimes losing their lives in the process), then many women follow, feel sorry for their selves, start whining about a non-existent "oppression" and "patriarchy," then howl, "Since you've done all the hard, dangerous work and now that things are easy with air conditioning and cars and airplanes, give me my cut! No, wait! Give all of it to me because I can run it just as well as men! No, wait! Better!"
Why should men give women a say in anything when men created everything? Would I give a child a say in running society and civilization?
It didn't surprise me decades ago when I found both Schopenhauer and Lord Chesterfield referred to women as big children. I've seen it myself, as have all my friends.
I've had women tell me, "Men are responsible for all the problems in the world" (what is this, 1967?) All of them were unmarried, middle-aged, and made about $45,000 a year from jobs created by men. Gratitude? Appreciation? What are those? But envy? Certainly.
Women would be up shit creek if men didn't love them – and many women are doing their damndest to screw that up. Those goofy evo-psych/Manosphere hallucinations about it all being about sex - goofy as hell. It's about love - and if love didn't exist we'd be on the same level as cats and dogs. Both men and women.
I've mentioned before about "The Little House on the Prairie Books," which everyone should read. There is a scene in which Laura Ingalls Wilder's father ("Pa") builds a house basically with an ax. He chops down trees, has the horses haul them to the site, makes logs out of them, builds a house, then splits logs lengthwise, smoothes the insides, then uses them for the floor. Then he builds the furniture!
This is what he did for his wife and children. And bulldog, for that matter.
His wife ("Ma") did the cooking, cleaning, canning, etc. Could she have built the house? BWAHAHA!!! Could he do the cooking, canning. etc.? I’d rather build the house!
And I don't think Pa was as big or strong as I am. I know what he went through, since my father was a general contractor and I started building houses when I was 12. It was pretty horrible at times. I almost got killed once and hurt myself several times - smashing your thumb with a hammer is not funny, no matter what the cartoons tell us.
I once found the tip of a guy's finger when he fell off of a ladder and grabbed the wrong thing. I've also seen guys run power saws over their hands and fingers and shoot themselves in the foot with nail guns.
I occasionally ask women what would happen to them if men withdrew from running and maintaining the world. No more water or electricity or food. Poof! Just like that.
Now what have I done to create/discover/invent? Nothing! But guess what? I can maintain civilization – which women cannot do. And there are hundreds of millions of me!
One woman told me, "Men wouldn't get paid," to which I responded, "You just don't get it at all, do you? Men invented everything in the world. And 'getting paid' is a concept men discovered. Just like they discovered economics."
Carl Jung understood this. Men are culturally indispensible since they created everything and women are biologically indispensable since they have the babies. Until we create artificial wombs and sexbots!
I've mentioned before about the wisdom of the story of the Garden of Eden. Women's greatest flaw is envy (the "serpent" is a symbol of envy) and men's greatest flaw is listening to envious women - and apparently being unable to perceive that they are envious!
Envy wants to drag people down. It shows no gratitude and appreciation. So when women put men down and demand things from them (especially without giving anything in return), those are the main signs of envy.
Take Hillary Clinton, for an example. She got everything she's gotten on the coat tails of her husband. Without him where would she be? A second-rate lawyer fixing traffic tickets?
This envy of women, with men unable to recognize it, is part of the Battle of the Sexes, which has now apparently taken on the dimensions of a war!
Marriage rates have collapsed, which of course women blame on men - since they refuse to look in the mirror. And babies being born? Not so much anymore.
Why should men get married and have children? What's in it for them anymore? Being the object of envious attacks and having every problem in the world blamed on them? Who needs that?
These problems have happened in the past, which is one of the reasons all past societies have collapsed.
Yet people don't learn from history. In fact, if there is one lesson from history everyone should know, it's that people don't learn from it.
